Rosslynd Piggott: I sense you but I cannot see you
National Gallery of Victoria
‘I sense you but I cannot see you’ is a comprehensive survey of Rosslynd Piggott’s artistic practice from the early 1980s to today, charting a remarkable oeuvre that includes paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations. ‘Rosslynd’s work has courted the elusive and the ethereal,’ writes curator Jane Devery in the book’s forward, which considers the ideas and subjects of specific works from compressed time and space to glass, mirrors, flowers and the human figure. Jennifer Higgie creatively pens a register of various facts and thoughts such as Rosslynd’s comparison of an artist to that of a diver, the narratives embedded in her titles, and her social media curation. The publication concludes with Rosslynd’s personal writings and journal pages on her recent paintings.
